Lisa has a special interest in fighting for affordable housing, in particular, for the growing number of older single women who are in housing distress.

The impact of the COVID pandemic and the high cost of rentals has exacerbated this issue.

In 2020 in Parliament, Lisa proudly launched report Reimagining Home – A Framework for Creating Home with Older Single Women on Low Incomes with Shelter WA and Connect Victoria Park.

This significant research project by Liz Lennon, from Focused Solutions, a single older women with experience of poverty, housing stress and homelessness, brings to life a new future of housing options.
